Self-Presentation Philosophy:

The Gow School's self-presentation standards aspire to promote self-confidence, dignity, self-care, a positive attitude, and pride in self, as well unify our students, faculty and staff. Professional decorum sets the tone for academic learning and creates an expectation of accountability and self-awareness. This self-presentation philosophy upholds The Gow School's Pillars of kindness, respect, honesty and hard work, and offers long-term value to students.
